Although we dedicate a lot of time to the ends of our hair with oils, treatments and trims, a little-known haircare secret is that healthy hair actually starts at the scalp. The roots of our hairs can suffer from product-buildup, un-regulated oil production, and dryness just to name a few. Follow along with our favorite targeted treatment - a "Scalp Facial," to address these concerns, as well as stimulate the scalp.
Step 1: Scalp Facial
We start off with one of our favorite's for scalp benefits, Soothe-Sayer™ Bi-Phase Scalp Serum. This formula works to calm any inflammation on the surface with celery seed extract and organic blue tansy, while also invigorating the senses with caffeine. Hydrolyzed quinoa protein works to soften and soothe.
Pro tip: Shake your serum up before applying to ensure that all of the ingredients are blended together, as separation is natural in this formula.
Step 2: Massage I-N
Apply in the evening before going to bed by sectioning hair and using the dropper to apply evenly throughout the scalps surface. You can use 1-2 drops, depending on your needs and surface area.
Bonus: Massaging the scalp can help to relieve tension, promote relaxation and boost circulation, making this the perfect pre-sleep micro-service!
Step 2: Cleanse
After waking up the next morning, you may feel that your scalp is oversaturated with product and your problems made worse. Not to fear! This treatment is meant to be used as a sort of hair mask - leave on overnight, then rinse excess product out in the morning. For added hydration benefits, we love using our Fortifi-hair™ Shampoo to remove dirt and product while delivering the nutrient-rich benefits of shea butter and baobab protein.
Step 4: Restore Shine
You can use any I-N conditioner, but our current favorite is our NEW Shine Bright Moisture Mask. Made with aspergillus ferment, golden samphire and organic argan, this formula is ideal for those looking to lock-in moisture, strengthen hair and add a shiny gloss to strands.
